Work permits for all guest workers to cost JD500 under new by-law

By JT - Feb 01,2017 - Last updated at Feb 01,2017

AMMAN — The Council of Ministers on Wednesday approved a by-law amending the by-law on work permit fees, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The decision, effective after removing the halt on agriculture labour recruitment and after the grace period for workers to rectify their status, aims at unifying the permit fees for foreign labour.

According to the by-law, business owners will pay JD500 for annual work permits, while they will pay JD300 for temporary permits. Revenues will be used to support the Employment-Technical and Vocational Education and Training Fund and the Agriculture Credit Fund, according to Petra.

Hi,
I'm from Bangladesh,
I need job if anyone can help give me to work please contact with 078924119 whatsapp only or mobile 008801824974704

THIS FEES IS NOTHING AND INSIGNIFICANT IF YOU COMPARE THIS WITH THE REAL COST OF THE SO CALLED GUEST WORKERS IN JORDAN. FIRST, THIS MAKES JORDANIANS LAZY AND COMPLICATES HEALTH ISSUES, DRAINS THE CENTRAL BANK OF MUCH NEEDED HARD CURRENCY AND IN FACT HAS BECOME A CLASS THING OF WHO HAS OR DOES NOT HAVE SLAVES. WHEN JORDANIANS LEAVE JORDAN TO LIVE IN THE WEST, DO THEY HAVE MAIDS?. WHAT IS THE ORIGN OF THIS PRACTICE WHEN IN FACT SOME JORDANIAN WOMEN DO NOT WORK. AGAIN, THERE SHOULD BE A SIN TAX ON THIS PRACTICE THAT SHOULD NOT BE LESS THAN JD5000.00 EVERY YEAR. THIS IS WHERE THE REVENUE SHOULD COME FROM AND NOT AT THE BACK OF THE POOR AND THEIR MEANS OF SURVIVAL.
